Benefactor robinjojo Posted June 17, 2022 · Benefactor Benefactor Share Posted June 17, 2022 This is an owl that came out of an auction last month. Pharaonic Kingdom of Egypt, uncertain pharaoh(s) AR Tetradrachm. Late 5th-mid 4th centuries BC. Imitating Athens. Helmeted head of Athena to right, with frontal eye / Owl standing to right, head facing; olive sprig and crescent behind, ΑΘΕ before; all within incuse square. Van Alfen pl. 11; Van Alfen, Mechanisms, Group III.A.1, Fig. 3 = Buttrey Type X. 16.91g, 25mm, 9h. This type of pharaonic owl has an owl on the reverse with very exaggerated feet, so with feet so long as these, why not take to the waves near Santa Cruz. And some surfin' music - Have a great summer! Hit that groove in Santa Cruz! 16 1 1 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
